DB Bistro Moderne
Part of celebrity chef Daniel Boulud’s restaurant empire, this midtown bistro is ideal for pre- and post-theater dining. The restaurant comprises a central wine cellar and two adjacent dining rooms: the front room is decorated with red plaster walls, stone floors, and brightly colored floral photographs by Christopher Beane, while the back room contains green-tinted glass and wood-and-steel-framed mirrors. Executed by chef Laurent Kalkotour, the contemporary French-American menu includes such popular dishes as the house burger—stuffed with foie gras, braied short ribs, and black truffle—and the duck confit with black kale, wild mushrooms, and sweet and sour jus.

From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List
Five years ago, Carole Bamford started an acclaimed organic farm shop at her Daylesford estate in Gloucestershire. Then, in 2006, she opened this airy Sloane Square café that promotes her all-natural ethos: Everything from the meat to the salad to the cheese is organic, with the majority coming daily from her farm.
We loved: Slow-braised Daylesford beef; salmon with horseradish crème fraîche.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
